"Wow! Thank you! I always wondered why in my Music Theory class the teacher forbade parallel fifths and octaves as if it were a sin! And it is very true. So cool (: Thank you again!"

    I listened to your music, you are really great! I would love to learn how to manage all the effects and the sound libraries for the movie soundtrack, in te same way of you!

  • Hi James. Absolutely amazing work all over. Guitar work on "Djames" and sounds/writing on Fight Music & Epic are brilliant. I am in awe.
  • Hi James, I had not checked in for a while and wow, this site just keeps getting better. I'm catching up on your blogs. Am especially interested in your remarks on compositional techniques. Do you ever feel like you're in a rut, like everything you do is starting to sound alike? I'm feeling that way. Got any advice? Thanks. Martha Maria
